Rumors of Our Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Rumors of Our Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Popping in quickly to share an article that made its way to my eyeballs today. Snowboarding has been under some serious scrutiny lately, with more than a handful of people harboring the opinion that snowboarding is dead.  This was one of the offending articles – it got my back up, made me rage and rant and […]

Shaun White OUT of Sochi Slopestyle

Shaun White OUT of Sochi Slopestyle

For anyone following the lead up to the Sochi Winter Olympics, it’s been a rather interesting 24hours. Torstein Horgmo took a slam in the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, breaking his collarbone and putting an abrupt end to his 2014 Olympic campaign. My heart goes out to Torstein, after working so hard to get his chance […]

Splitboarding is for Summer

Splitboarding is for Summer

Summer definitely isn’t my favourite season…are you surprised?! Of course not. In the past few years after ditching back to back winters and grounding ourselves firmly in Queenstown. I’ve learnt to enjoy the things that summer has to offer. Long days spent soaking up the sun, abundantly green veggie gardens, long sweaty hikes, swimming in […]

Winter Wrap Up

Winter Wrap Up

Summer is officially here, so it’s probably time to look back on the winter that was. I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a few weeks now but honestly, I wasn’t ready to let winter go just yet!

If not – here’s your heads up!! Unfortunately I don’t qualify to enter as I’m not a resident of the U.S.A , so I thought […]

Just a bit nippy!

Just a bit nippy!

Like any other day, today I’ve spent plenty of time trawling over facebook and instagram looking for something that’s a little bit inspirational or a little bit fun and maybe even a little bit cheeky. Finally I hit the JACKPOT with this number from Sweetgrass Productions, it ticks all the boxes and then some! Watching a crew of butt naked […]

Burton presents WOMEN [snowboarding]

Burton presents WOMEN [snowboarding]

Winter has come to a grey, miserable end here in New Zealand…full of huge weather fluctuations, massive electrial storms, gale force winds, snowfall and even beautiful sunny days. My season of splitboarding is all but over, hopefully I’ll be lucky enough to get another cheeky ride in before BBQ season begins. It’s not all over […]

Inspiration

Inspiration

Inspiration is a funny thing…at the moment I’m finding it in all sorts of unusual places. A news article about an unfortunate climber’s death on Mt Cook led me to an afternoon of researching the hugely inspiring life of Sir Edmund Hillary, which left a burning desire to conquer my metaphorical and physical mountains.  Watching […]
